Him: “Howdy howdy….what the????…
I had posted the opener above and the rest of his email here late last night and thought better of it; he hasn’t given permission for me to quote it, and while he knows about the blog he hasn’t found it yet. I’d hate for the airing of his reply to me to be a cause for his alarm some time in the future. Sorry to those who saw the post go up and didn’t get to read it!
It turns out that he’d skipped past my email in his inbox and had been assuming I’d been done in by the 25hours of ‘therapy’* I’d had last weekend! Me? Overwhelmed by 2 small children… *snort*.
Still, in the spirit of charity and the fact that I do enjoy our correspondence I shall do as Farli suggests and give him the benefit of the doubt… more tales to follow, no doubt, because, in the spirit of open communication I asked him what he’d been thinking all week and when/if he was planning to ask me what had happened…
Oh, and boys, if you’re reading this, and you get an email like the one I sent yesterday, score some big, big points by copping to option three regardless of whether you believe it or not…
*therapy is how I refer to the nanny job I do once a week. My little pocket of sanity in a code crazy world.
Hmm… he better play nice from now on!

yup yup – he knows he’s on probation, but it’s fair enough to give him a chance… if he misacts in any way though, I’d kick him to the curb!
Hopefully he’ll just be marvellous from now on!
Oh what! I missed the juiciest part? I need to sit on your blog all day long from now one. Must. Miss. Nothing.
Wishing you all the best!! :-)
